Alternative Forms of Markets and Organizations

The Alternative Forms of Markets and Organizations (AFMO) team brings together researchers to investigate four key topics:

  • social and environmental innovations,
  • alternative forms of organizations,
  • the crafting of organizations,
  • the production and consumption of management knowledge.

Our team members create knowledge and share expertise by conducting research on pioneering markets and organizations to understand their management and business models as well as identify the historical roots behind such evolutions and their potential for creating social change.
